Now Bengaluru Police Can Map Crimes In Real Time Using A Web Based Application

Bengaluru Police has come up with an interesting application that helps to track crimes in real time and even access information on crime patterns. 

There is a general perception that the Indian police always arrives late at the crime scene. How wonderful it’ll be if the men in uniform can track crimes in real time and take appropriate action?

Well, the Bengaluru city police has come up with an amazing solution for this.

They have developed a Google Maps based technology that collects crime data in real time. The app has been deployed across 13 police stations in the South-East areas of the city.

The app helps the police to map station boundaries, bar and wine store locations and other details including the various types of crimes.

“We can directly open it, feed the information and update it. So at any point of time, I am able to access what is happening and exactly where,” told Rohini Katoch Sepat, DCP South East Division, Bengaluru to Deccan Herald.

One of the interesting features of the app is that once the crime is reported, a policeman, using a unique id and password, feeds all the data related to the crime like location, type of the crime, suspect, etc.

This feature will help to identify the pattern of crimes in certain cases, locations and even help to take relevant actions.

The app is operational in 13 police stations of the city.
